Recreating freeciv client

Postby miammiam » Sat May 30, 2020 3:05 pm

Hi I am trying to recreate a highly bare-bones freeciv client that can connect to servers however I have no idea why on earth the unknown packet (id: 120) is being sent!
It gets sent every time I send /help

Worst of all it gets sent encrypted or something as the data it is holding does not contain the ascii of what the client receives after sending /help.

Please help this makes no sense.

Could anyone explain how this all works I am quite confused and am not highly proficient in C so it makes reading the source code a bit difficult.
